How would I upgrade an address list created with exchange 2003?  I know how to do the prebuilt address lists, but what about custom or more complex address lists.  The text shown below is what I hand copied from one of the address lists in 2007...when you right click a legacy address list in exchange 2007 management console, and click edit, it gives you a warning that you must update the address list using the "set-addresslist" command.  It then shows a screeen with the text shown below in the first page of the wizard.  Fair enough, but I don't know the proper sytax to use at the command line to do this.  I have about 10 more address list like this that I need to upgrade...any help is apprecitated.
This exchange 2007 server is SP1 with the latest rollup..running on win2008 standard, with all the patches.
This address list is called Business and Industry on the exchange 2003 box.

(objectCatagory=publicFolder) )))(objectCategory=user)(department=*B&I)))
